Good, but be aware spare batteries for this camera are expensive


Just don't buy the name brand ones and its cheap, bought these 2 batteries for £18 over a year ago now and they last just as long as the original in both my TZ80 and LX100. Available as single battery for £11 too.
Unless you really have a need for 4K shooting and a touchscreen, the older TZ70 is the better camera sub £200, with a better pixel pitch giving an improved signal to noise ratio on your shots.

Good price for those that do though, heat added.

Bit more future proof being 4k though? TZ60 is also brilliant although they're tough to get a hold of.

Depends if you want it for video recording and have 4K needs.

I got this 18 months ago for about £300 so this is a good deal I think, great results but I was disappointed at how plasticky and bulky it was compared to my trusty old TZ7 that was metal cased and much smaller and more pocket friendly.

Good 1080 and 4K results and very impressive video image stabilisation on full zoom mode and the timelapse feature works well.

Shame it can't be used when plugged in, so not so good if using as a video camera on a tripod.

I had a TZ20 (I think) then a TZ60 which was amazing. I happily upgraded to this on its release and found it to be just ok.

I find the photos overly noisy and at full zoom they are just about ok.

Maybe I need to work harder on the manual mode but I did get this to point and shoot.

I think it’ll be a tz100 next as the 20 zoom isn’t really something I need.
Nice deal - not quite a TZ100 though is it....

Ye I have TZ60 and I think you are right - the 60 is better than the 80. The 80 is a bit of a rip off and my 60 takes the exact same size pictures, but for nearly £70 less....
